MOUNT VERNON — Two members of the Mount Vernon Fire Department’s Color Guard opened Tuesday’s Mount Vernon City Council as Honor Guard Commander Nate Hines and Charles Swank presented the colors and led those in council chambers in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Prior to the start of the legislative agenda, Raymond Booth encouraged council and administrative to take as much time as was needed to deliberate on the possibility of contracting fire and emergency medical service to College and Monroe townships.
“I think the one thing you need to think about is the citizens of Mount Vernon,” Booth said. “I know people said tonight they won’t short change us, I think we are the priority over the people in Gambier or Monroe Township.”
Nate Overholt, Environmental Health director with the Knox County Health Department, presented a quarterly report regarding the department’s assistance to Mount Vernon residents.
